Where have all the bedtime stories gone?
One dark, dark night in Burrow Down, a rabbit named Eliza Brown found a book and settled down...when a Snatchabook flew into town.
It's bedtime in the woods of Burrow Down, and all the animals are ready for their bedtime story. But books are mysteriously disappearing. Eliza Brown decides to stay awake and catch the book thief. It turns out to be a little creature called the Snatchabook who has no one to read him a bedtime story. All turns out well when the books are returned and the animals take turns reading bedtime stories to the Snatchabook.

This was the most adorable book I have read to my kids in A LONG TIME! The adorable illustrations and fun story kept my kids intrigued and fighting over who got to turn the page next! Though that was a combination of wanting to find out where all the bedtime stories went and because we read it on the iPad, not something we have done in the past but it worked out really well!

It’s lyrical rhymes were my 4 year olds favorite part, always knowing when the words Burrow Down or Eliza Brown were coming! We have had to read it nearly every night for the past several weeks and I really don’t think that I am going to get sick of it any time soon!!!

SNATCHABOOK is perfect for anyone with kids, or kids who visit. Or even an adult who just adores children's books! Go on, download it. There’s no judgment here on what kid of books one loves. Speaking of your books, maybe you should check to make sure you still have all of yours…
